Newcastle City Council is seeking to regenerate the Riverside Dene area of the City. As the initial phase of this, the Council requires the construction of a new sports stadium.
The building will include a 3 court basketball hall, with 9 metres clear height, suitable for other sports, and space for nearly 3000 spectators when a single match court arrangement is used.
Ancillary accommodation will include:
• Hospitality areas that can be used by the community.
• Foyer, shop, booking office, and areas for sales of refreshments and snacks.
• Changing areas for up to 8 teams to include access for disabled players
Car parking for approximately 300 cars and associated coach parking to be provided on the adjoining site.
Please note that this is not a design and build contract. The Council has already had detailed designs drawn up which tenderers will price against. The estimated start on site is January 2013, with the stadium required to be fully operational by September 2013.
This work is being procured by Your Homes Newcastle, but the resulting contract will let formally in the name of the Council.
